Prince Among Slaves is a historical documentary directed, written and produced by Andrea Kalin and narrated by Mos Def made for PBS by Unity Productions Foundation.
Artemus Gaye knew he was descended from slaves, but it took a civil war in Liberia, eight trips to Mississippi and years of research to discover he is also descended from royalty. Gaye traced back his ancestry and found that he is the seventh generation descendant of Abdul Rahman, a West African Prince turned slave who is the subject of the PBS documentary “Prince Among Slaves”.
On this visit he will unite with other descendants of the “Prince” who live in Louisiana
